Fastest way to veg? 24/0 18/6?
Posted 12 May 2009 - 09:44 PM
24/0 will REALLY kill your electric bill more then you think. the cost per keeping a bulb going is normally based on having it on for 5 hours max a day( read the fine print on those nice money saver sheets they give u with your bulbs) and bulbs that are left on constantly have a MUCH higher chance of shorting out. From all records tho, it does give faster growth.

Once you start the photoperiod you should keep that way especially when the plants near maturity (the preflowering stage). An irregular photoperiod can cause more males than females to develop. It can also cause sexual dysfunction to appear. Whether you choose 24/0 or 18/6 as your vegetative photoperiod try to keep that photoperiod unitl your plants are mature enough to express their sex."
TheCheeF according to this, no you should not switch.

ya during summers i run a 18/6 because it gets into the 90's sometimes 100's where i am at, so try to kill lights at 1pm and start again at 7pm then when fall hits and it starts to cool down i run for 24hours, i also have my exhaust hooked into my floor vent so the heat from my hoods actually heat up the house when it gets cold.
